This is the short version of the Social Distortion bio — the long version could be a 10-part mini-series. But over the past 30 years, the punk godfathers in the band have all but trademarked their sound, a brand of hard rockabilly/punk that's cut with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of frontman Mike Ness. Their searing guitars and a locomotive rhythm section sound as alive today as they did in '82, as do Ness' hard-luck tales of love, loss and lessons learned. "The most common thing I hear is, 'Man, your music got me through some hard times,'" Ness says. "And I just say, 'Me too.'"
It's not possible to buy tickets to a specific concert, instead you buy an entrance ticket to the park itself, or our season card Gröna Kortet that you can use every day during the summer to gain access to the park. Tickets bought beforehand does not guarantee you entrance to the park - we recommend being here on time before the concert.
Online tickets are only sold through Gröna Lunds own website. In Stockholm it's also possible to buy Gröna Kortet at Pressbyrån and 7-Eleven.
Gröna Kortet costs 310 kr and allows you to gain access to the park every day during the summer season. On days with concerts admittance costs 130 kr before 6 PM. After that the price is 310 kr and Gröna Kortet is included.
